We in Dance Ireland, understand the growing concerns the impact that the current public health emergency is having on our dance community and the cultural sector at large.
I would like to thank everyone who joined Dance Ireland Members Zoom call on Friday for sharing your thoughts, experiences, and concerns. It is important to me to hear from you, and to learn from you as we navigate this together.
In my first week as CEO of Dance Ireland, I have been working with the team on programme plans which respond to the circumstances we are currently faced with and the effect it has on artistic practices and development. I look forward to sharing these plans with you in the coming weeks, which will work to continue to progress our art form and support our community.
Please stay in touch with us and keep us up to date with how things are with you, to share any thoughts or questions you may have. We will continue to keep you updated via our newsletter, website and social media channels on resources and opportunities as they arise.
Lastly, many thanks for such a warm welcome this past week. I look forward to meeting in person when we can gather again and be creative together.
